70 years of the NHS

70 years of the NHS

2018

The National Health Service turned 70 on 5 July 2018. This provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to appreciate the vital role the service plays in everyone’s lives, and to recognise and thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for people, day in, day out.
